Orlando Attorney William Umansky Nominated for Appointment to Ninth Circuit JNC

At the May meeting of the Florida Bar Board of Governors, nominations for vacancies on Judicial Nominating Commissions (JNC) throughout Florida were announced. William Umansky, of the Umansky Law Firm, was nominated to serve on the Ninth Circuit JNC. Nominations are forwarded to Governor Rick Scott, who makes the final decision on appointments to the various JNCs.

A JNC is comprised of nine members, both lawyers and non-lawyers, who review applicants for judicial openings throughout Florida. Each circuit has its own JNC and each member serves a 4-year term.

Five members of each JNC are direct appointments made by the governor; the remaining four seats are filled based on the nominations sent to the Governor by the Florida Bar Board of Governors. The Board must provide three nominations for each vacancy. Bill Umansky, known as ‘The Lawman’ by his peers, practices criminal defense and personal injury law throughout Central Florida, and was one of three Orlando-area attorneys nominated for the Ninth Circuit JNC vacancy.

The Umansky Law Firm represents individuals who are in the fight of their life-whether against the criminal justice system or a large insurance company. With almost twenty years of experience, including as a former Florida Assistant State Attorney and Orlando City Prosecutor, Bill Umansky knows the legal system and works tirelessly for the best possible results for each and every client.

Whether his clients have been accused of a crime or have been injured by the negligence of another, Bill believes in second chances. He will pursue compensation for the injured so that his clients can move forward toward a new, better life and he will provide a vigorous defense for his clients who may have made a mistake and now face criminal charges.
